Football

Both of Saturday's Jersey Premiership matches were postponed after heavy rain hit the island.

The four teams due to be in action had all been hoping for their first wins of the campaign.

But the western derby clash between Championship winners St Brelade and St Ouen was hit by a waterlogged goalmouth.

The game between St Lawrence and Grouville will also need to be re-arranged.

Two Championship matches survived the weather.

Trinity moved seven points clear at the top with a 2-1 win over First Tower United.

Scott Finnigan and Dave Le Roux got the goals for the home side, while Andy Sharp was on the scoresheet for Tower.

Elsewhere, Ged Horgan's 30-yard-strike was not enough for Sporting Academics as they drew 1-1 at Beeches Old Boys. Dave Nolan netted for Beeches.
